Hrytsenko Outlines 'Martial-Economic Law'

Anatoliy Hrytsenko, Ukraine’s former defense minister, minced no words on "Shuster Live."

Former defense minister Anatoliy Hrytsenko: I believe that today we should be working under...uh...conditions of martial-economic law, without declaring it. Like the military, in case of war, switches to an absolutely different system of management, so should we create a different system of economic management. I would approve the following: For all officials — of any level — from the President to the lowest-ranking official who either caused, whether by commission or omission, the loss of economic resources or took a bribe of $10,000 or more, the penalty shall be at least 15 years’ imprisonment, without parole [roar of applause]...and with full confiscation of property. Second…second, if the crime was committed by a law enforcement or court employee, the penalty shall be life imprisonment, with full confiscation of property. We should restore order.

Did you notice those sullen faces? Did you see how unenthusiastic former prosecutor general Svaytoslav Piskun, deputy Kyiv mayor Irena Kilchytska and former NSDC chief Petro Poroshenko looked?

Martian law and martial law. What a big difference.
